I believe up until Thanksgivinng there were spots, which would probably mean a wave the week after that. I believe that corresponds pretty well with the waves from last year


I would actually guess, that for continuity purposes, this suggests a wave before Thanksgiving (then the 2nd wave can start interviewing right after the holidays). However, if this coincides with the last year's wave, you might be right.

I wore a dress and cardigan. Dress is probably a little too short but hey, they can only see chest up

Yeah that's a good idea. I have next to no dressy clothes that fit me (lost 40 pounds, nbd 8) ) so I will be on the prowl this black friday to be sure

But Chicago specifically requests hrs/week as part of any resume whereas Duke does not (unless I’m mistaken). Are you already under review? If not, I would think that it’s worth it to send an updated resume.

Whoops, yeah I’ve been under review since the 31st, so I won’t send an updated one. I don’t think it’ll tip the scale per say, guess I’ll see what’s up when the next wave of interviews comes out

If it helps, I forgot to add the hrs/wk on my resume as well, but I got an interview. I haven't been accepted or anything, so I guess it could still turn out poorly for me, but at least I can say it didn't turn into an automatic rejection.

Same. Forgot to add that, also got an interview request. Freaking out a bit, but seems like it’s not uh...fatal


I highly, highly doubt it’s fatal and would never mean to suggest that. It might be the sort of mild annoyance that would cause an already marginal candidate to get waitlisted or denied. That’s why I think it’s worth it for folks not under review to send a revised one if they have a chance. Otherwise, probably not a concern in most cases.

Fuck I forgot too. Not too concerned since I likely won't attend without killing the Feb test and negotiating $$$

Just had my interview, and I think it went really well. No curve ball questions (everything was pretty much from the "list") and the interviewer was really friendly. Twenty minutes on the nose. Feels really good to have it out of the way. Sounds like it will be a while before regular decisions go out.

Also just had my interview and I agree with all of the above. Very friendly, nice interview. Was told the first round of decisions won't be until January, so it'll be a long wait.

In reference to the list are you referring to the questions you listed a few days ago?

Just had my interview as well and many of the questions were from that list Platopus posted a few days ago.

Yes, most of the questions were pulled directly from that list. I can recall two that were not:

-What is the best piece of advice you've received?
-What would you do if you didn't go to law school and become a lawyer?

Probably. I interviewed with Dean Perry and she told me that she didn't have a timeline and that she appreciated the early app, but that I'll have to be patient. :lol:

Currently bummed out because I got JS1 but no inverview request from Chicago.


In the same boat: complete 10/19, UR 2(?) 10/31... no interview request from Chicago yet, but have received JS1...

So no new interview requests since the first wave, right? Getting some anxiety over here with no Chicago interview request or JS1...

Does anyone know how likely you are to be admitted if you were invited to interview?

I haven't really been following this thread....I've been complete since 11/9. Should I be UR by now or do people go from complete right to interview request?
